Juvederm

In the twenty first century, people want to age gracefully. They do not want others to guess their age. But wrinkles and various kinds of lines and folds mar the perfect picture that a modern man wants to see in the mirror. In a bid to remove all the signs of old age, an individual uses juvederm.

Juvederm one of the newest of the so-called “injectable fillers,” is used by cosmetic, dermatological and plastic surgeons to soften deep folds and reduce wrinkles in the faces of patients. The substance is largely hyaluronic acid, a substance normally found in the skin, muscles, and tendons of mammals. Approved in June 2006 by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, Juvederm's prime use is removing nasolabial folds, or “smile lines”, creases of skin which run from the corners of the nose to the corners of the mouth. It is also used as a lip augmentation agent, and to fill in hollow places and scars on the face. However, all hyaluronic acid facial filler products are eventually absorbed by the body, usually within six to nine months, causing the patient to undergo repeat injections to maintain the younger look.

Juvederm is also used by physicians to plump lips, which also lose fat and internal shape with normal aging.

Juvederm is suitable for men and women of all ages but should be avoided by pregnant and nursing women. The ingredient in this dermal filler is hyaluronic acid gel. This is a natural substance that does not generally cause allergies but if you have an allergy to lidocaine or usually have severe allergies, you should be sure to let your doctor know.
